Birding Expert to Speak at MassMu Brown Bag Lunch
Jen Brumfield, a naturalist with Cleveland Metroparks will present “Birding on Boats: Secrets of Lake Erie Birds” at the Massillon Museum’s Brown Bag Lunch program on Tuesday, March 28, beginning at 12:10 p.m. It will conclude about 12:50 p.m. to accommodate those who attend on their lunch hours.
Based at the Rocky River Nature Center, Brumfield eagerly combines a passion for extreme birding, field studies, outdoor education, and detailed scientific illustration into a truly “wild” career. She enthusiastically offers public and school programs throughout Northeast Ohio.
Since 2005, Brumfield has written and illustrated seven field guides to the flora and fauna of Cleveland Metroparks and composed more than 100 illustrations for the second edition of The Dragonflies and Damselflies of Northeast Ohio.
“Jen wowed our audience in 2015 with her lifelike birdcalls and stories about what different sounds mean. We invited her to return with a new focus to educate and entertain this month’s audience,” said Margy Vogt, volunteer chair of the Brown Bag Lunch series.
The Brown Bag Lunch series is free and open to everyone. Guests may bring lunch or purchase sandwiches, salad, and smoothies at Greatness Cafe in the Museum lobby. MassMu provides complimentary cookies and coffee to all attendees.
The Massillon Museum is grateful for operating support from the Ohio Arts Council, ArtsinStark, and the citizens of Massillon, as well as marketing support from Visit Canton. The Brown Bag Lunch series is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
MassMu is located at 121 Lincoln Way East in downtown Massillon. A visit is always free and everyone is welcome. Free parking is available on adjacent streets and in nearby city lots. For more information, call 330-833-4061 or visit massillonmuseum.org.
